Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the LB position.

D'Qwell Jackson was fantasy football's top linebacker in 2011, but his production fell way off in 2012, with his solo numbers dropping by over 40 percent. With that said though, the arrival of new defensive coordinator Ray Horton in Cleveland is great news for Jackson's IDP prospects. Horton is the same DC who just propelled Daryl Washington to a top finish among fantasy linebackers in Arizona last year, and his ultra-aggressive philosophy with his inside linebackers could easily boost Jackson back into the top 10.
